Sunak ‘taking public for fools’ with 2p national insurance cut, says Labour

Rishi Sunak is “taking people for fools” with potential further tax cuts, Wes Streeting has said.

The shadow health secretary was asked if Labour would seek to match a 2p national insurance cut expected to be in the Tory manifesto on Tuesday, 11 June.

Mr Streeting said: “We are not able to make that commitment today because the money simply isn’t there and I think Rishi Sunak should level with people that the money simply isn’t there.

“I think he is taking people for fools.”

Labour will announce their manifesto on Thursday.
